Travel is one of the great joys in life. The older we get, the more time we seem to have to do some of the things that were difficult when we have young families and large mortgages to pay – doing stuff like travelling.
Skiing is a passion and it has become a business for me too with my new skiing website, http://www.ski-the-world.info which will work with my skiing blog, http://www.ski-biz.info to inform and entertain the skiing (and snowboarding) fraternity around the world.
Tomorrow Bill and I are off to Canada to look at some well-loved and new ski fields, write some articles about the best and not so good resorts and to cover the Vancouver Olympics.
Work should be pleasurable and building websites that are about one of my great passions in life makes work fun.
We fly Air Canada direct to Vancouver – only 14 hours which is great for a trip from Sydney Australia. Then we fly on with Air Canada domestic into Kelowna in the Okanagan Valley to start a ski adventure.
There are some must-haves in the stuff we take. Minimal clothing as our ski gear resides in Canada with friends. Vegemite is essential and it’s always fun feeding it to the Canadians on Australia Day. A good book – essential and flip flops for the hot tub (getting to and from so our wet feet don’t freeze to the floor).
That’s it. Next news will be from Canada.
